Home from the supermarket's clamour,
We long to rest quietly in silence.

arabic, art, emotions, longing,
I lean in to your space tonight
My hair caresses your face tonight
I started looking for you long ago
I am waiting with grace tonight
I came dressed in shadows

Afar I am but I do strongly feel thy passion

Emotions, unsettling as they are, high passion
Desire sparks my heart and I...Read More
